My rear mech hanger snapped about 2 weeks ago and i got a replacement but thats snapped too! In the space of having it on the bike for a week with no real aggressive or testing riding!!! Its been a clean snap both times so its bnot been bent first then broke.

Does anyone know why this keeps happening???

Thanks in advance, J
I love the sound my tyres make on dusty single track!
